I took my little friend Rocky to Cleethorpes today. Parked at the Leisure Centre and went a walk along the Promenade. 'Can we have a ride on the train, please, my little legs are tired'.
The blooms are lovely, come on give us a smile, and put your tongue in.
Oh alright then, I know you can't walk very far, you can have a ride in the stroller. I didn't mention it before, but his new set of wheels cost me £6 at the car boot sale on Sunday. Today was a test drive to see if he liked it, and he loved it.
'Aaah go on, let me have a ride in that big red truck'. No I don't think so, I don't have enough money.
'I want to take this donkey home, can we fit him in the car'. No, definitely not, you silly dog.
We had a lot of fun today, and put a smile on a lot of faces. He is a friendly little chap, he meets and greets everyone who says hello. A little ray of sunshine.
Hello, I am a 72 year old retired lorry driver. After trucking for 32 years I'd had enough, went part time when I was in my mid 50's and stopped altogether when I reached 60. Yippeeee, now I am free to do as I like. I live with three cats, I am very careful with my spending, only buying what I need. I have no qualms about buying second hand from car boot sales and charity shops, and getting free stuff from skip diving. Money saved is put towards holidays, a decent car, and days out. I love life, and it needn't cost a fortune to enjoy it.
1000 mile challenge 2020
We start our sixth year of the 1000 mile walking challenge on the 1st of January. Members of the International Walking Group will need to report in on the 1st of every month with their own mileage. If you feel that 1000 miles is too much for you, make up your own challenge. Any walking is better than no walking. The aim is to improve our health and fitness. Remember, you need to allocate time to do this, going for the odd ramble when you feel like it is not really enough. Walk fast, walk with a purpose.
Onward we go. Let's work hard to keep in good shape.
